    Description

    This is an offering for a stay on a farm that is being converted to a meditation healing centre starting this year, in a semi-remote valley in Central BC, 50 minutes from Williams Lake.
    The farm is home to a small herd of Dexter cattle, three horses, four big friendly dogs, three cats and some chickens. Most of the food is produced on the land here, if you are interested in how to live off the land, this is the place. Besides the farming, Simone is a full time artist and Josh is a nice guy. We live mostly outside of the system and in tune with the earth energies. Time does have a different meaning out here.

    The accommodation is a cabin with a queen bed and a small wood stove in it. 5 hours a day for 5 days a week is what we are asking. Food is hearty homemade meals with mostly organic ingredients. We do eat a couple of vegetarian meals a week.

    The work around here this year will be helping with general farm chores, planting, weeding, harvesting, and doing firewood. We are also potentially looking for someone who would look after the farm while we are away for a few nights.

    Because we are a ways out of town the helpers have to be content with being on the farm or have to have their own transportation. We go to town once or twice a week and helpers are welcome to come along. There is wifi on the farm, although not all devices can pick it up at the cabin and we ask to limit the time spent on the internet when being in our house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in cowboy country with range cows on he road and the occassional cowboy darting out of the bush after the cattle. If you really want to, we would take you to a rodeo, although we don't really agree with how the animals are treated there, but it is a Canadian thing to do in the summer. We are very much about respecting Mother Earth and raising the consciousness on the planet, so you can likely pick up a thing or two about the non-material realms and how to heal yourself if you feel drawn to that kind of thing.

    We are planning to upgrade our corral system before the winter, that means getting small trees for use as rails, pounding new posts etc.

    What else ...

    McLeese Lake is in the Central Cariboo, there is mountain biking, fishing, a magical lake close by and we have a canoe. Because we are remote and somewhat out of the system you will notice a certain type of energy in this valley, a good place to be meditating and reconnecting with nature.
